Does anyone have any experience with the balistic 17.5?
i ran one for a little bit as a temporary thing since i blew up my Duo 1,2, i dont remember which one it was, but i didnt like it that much, it was fast but for me it didnt feel right, it didnt feel smooth to me.

Thanks for the love! I'm looking forward to getting the info for nats.

The new 1S version of the SPv3 motors seem pretty decent in 2S applications.

I've tried both Ballistics and SSs in boost and non-boost, and I simply couldn't get them to work how I wanted. It was either good horsepower but terrible powerband or super smooth but lacking some oomph. I've owned 3 Putnam Duo 2's and they were amazing, so this week I bought a Putnam Duo 3 and will test it out Sunday

I highly considered the new TP, but I decided to stick with what has worked for me before. A fast friend of mine mentioned that he didn't feel like the TP liked being in a heavy TC but that it ran great in 1/12.

I'd go with a sp v3 use for 1s, it's definitely lighter and can be use for 2s. Check out cyruls thread.
